A Retro-inspired PRS with a Bigsby!

The PRS S2 Starla solidbody electric guitar is a retro-inspired, American-made tone machine. The thin mahogany body sports a Bigsby B50 tailpiece, Grover Tune-o-matic bridge, and a 22-fret mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard. The PRS S2 Starla Treble and Bass pickups give you a clean, crisp tone that breaks into a range of rich harmonic overtones when you drive it hard. Add the fact that it's among the most affordable Maryland-made PRS guitars, and you've got a winner in the versatile PRS S2 Starla!

The PRS S2 series of guitars

In their never-ending quest for guitar perfection, PRS has created the S2 series of guitars. These guitars were designed to give you all the tone and playability that PRS is known for in an affordable, American-made instrument. Key features of this series include PRS S2 locking tuners, custom-wound pickups, the PRS Pattern Regular neck shape, PRS bridge, and a hybrid gloss finish. The PRS S2 Starla delivers amazing playability and big guitar tone at a killer price. Call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer and order yours today!

Built to deliver classic guitar tones

PRS's S2 Starla solidbody electric guitar sports a Singlecut, asymmetric-beveled, thin mahogany body that delivers fat tones. A set of exclusive S2 Starla Treble and Bass pickups give you a distinctly clean and crisp sound across the majority of their dynamic range. However, when you really push your S2 Starla, you'll be rewarded with rich harmonic overtones that sound great when you use it to drive a tube amp just past the breakup point. A 3-way pickup selector and push-pull coil tap switch also give you access to an impressively wide range of tone. And don't forget about the Bigsby! From smooth vibrato to deep dives, the Bigsby B50 vibrato lets you put your signature on any song.

Pattern Regular-profile neck feels great and plays smoothly

The PRS S2 Starla gives you a Pattern Regular-profile mahogany neck fitted with a rosewood fretboard. A hallmark of PRS quality, neck shapes are, of course, critical to your playing experience. Perfected after years of prototyping, the Pattern Regular neck carve is based on Paul Reed Smith's original, pre-factory neck design — the same one used on instruments he built in the late '80s, at PRS's Virginia Avenue location. You'll love the playability and feel of the PRS S2 Starla electric guitar!

PRS S2 Starla Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:

  • Solid-mahogany body with asymmetric bevel
  • Pattern Regular-profile mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard
  • Genuine Bigsby B50 tailpiece and Grover Tune-o-matic bridge let you pull off long and gentle bends effortlessly
  • Proprietary S2 Starla humbucking pickups deliver a clean and crisp tone that breaks up gently when pushed
  • Push-pull tone control with coil tap for single-coil tones

Super Starla

This is a great guitar. It responds to a gentle touch or a heavy hand. It can coo like a dove or screech like an eagle. It's comfortable to play and appears extremely well made. I've had mine for a year or so with only a gentle tweak of the truss rod when I first received it. Frankly, I'm surprised there isn't more written here about this fabulous instrument. Quite a bit appears on YT, so check there if in doubt. PRS is offering tremendous value with this guitar. This is my first Bigsby equipped instrument and I'm very pleased at how smoothly and precisely it responds. And as always, Sweetwater's buying experience is second to none.
